country-code <country-code>

Code that represents the country in which the APs will operate. The country code determines the 802.11802.11 is an evolving family of specifications for wireless LANs developed by a working group of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). 802.11 standards use the Ethernet protocol and Carrier Sense Multiple Access with collision avoidance (CSMA/CA) for path sharing. wireless transmission spectrum.

Improper country code assignment can disrupt wireless transmissions. Most countries impose penalties and sanctions for operators of wireless networks with devices set to improper country codes.

no

Negates any configured parameter.

Specify a channel pair valid for 40 MHzMegahertz operation in the 802.11a802.11a provides specifications for wireless systems. Networks using 802.11a operate at radio frequencies in the 5 GHz band. The specification uses a modulation scheme known as orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) that is especially well suited to use in office settings. The maximum data transfer rate is 54 Mbps. frequency bandBand refers to a specified range of frequencies of electromagnetic radiation. for the specified regulatory domain. The two channels must be separated by a dash.

This parameter defines which 80 MHzMegahertz channels on the a bandBand refers to a specified range of frequencies of electromagnetic radiation. are available for assignment by ARMAdaptive Radio Management. ARM dynamically monitors and adjusts the network to ensure that all users are allowed ready access. It enables full utilization of the available spectrum to support maximum number of users by intelligently choosing the best RF channel and transmit power for APs in their current RF environment. and for Mobility Master to randomly assign if the user has not specified a channel. The channel numbers below correspond to channel center frequency.

Specify a channel pair valid for 40 MHzMegahertz operation in the 802.11g802.11g offers transmission over relatively short distances at up to 54 Mbps, compared with the 11 Mbps theoretical maximum of 802.11b standard. 802.11g employs Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM), the modulation scheme used in 802.11a, to obtain higher data speed. Computers or terminals set up for 802.11g can fall back to speed of 11 Mbps, so that 802.11b and 802.11g devices can be compatible within a single network. frequency bandBand refers to a specified range of frequencies of electromagnetic radiation. for the specified regulatory domain.

Usage Guidelines

This profile configures the country code and valid channels for operation of APs. The list of valid channels only affects the channels that may be selected by ARMAdaptive Radio Management. ARM dynamically monitors and adjusts the network to ensure that all users are allowed ready access. It enables full utilization of the available spectrum to support maximum number of users by intelligently choosing the best RF channel and transmit power for APs in their current RF environment. or by the Mobility Master when no channel is configured. Channels that are specifically configured in the AP radio settings profile (see rf dot11a-radio-profile or rf dot11g-radio-profile) must be valid for the country and the AP model.

A Mobility Master shipped to certain countries, such as the U.S. and Israel, cannot terminate APs with regulatory domain profiles that specify different country codes from the Mobility Master. For example, if a controller is designated for the U.S., then only a regulatory domain profile with the “US” country code is valid; setting APs to a regulatory domain profile with a different country code will result in the radios not coming up. For controllers in other countries, you can mix regulatory domain profiles on the same controller; for example, one controller can support APs in Japan, Taiwan, China, and Singapore.

In order for an AP to boot correctly, the country code configured in the AP regulatory domain profile must match the country code of the LMSLocal Management Switch. In multi-controller networks, each controller acts as an LMS and terminates user traffic from the APs, processes, and forwards the traffic to the wired network. . If none of the channels supported by the AP have received regulatory approval by the country whose country code you selected, the AP will revert to Air Monitor mode.

 

This command is used to override available channels in the list of channels allowed for use in that country. If you do not add any channels to the AP regulatory domain profile, it means the AP can use any of the available channels. If you want to disable use of an entire bandBand refers to a specified range of frequencies of electromagnetic radiation., best practices is to use the rf-dot11a-radio-profile or rf-dot11g-radio-profile commands to disable the radio. Alternatively, if you want to disable a specific bandwidth, use the Max Channel Bandwidth and Min Channel Bandwidth settings in the radio profiles, and AirMatch will enforce this setting.

Examples

The following command configures the regulatory domain profile for APs in Japan:

(host) [mynode](config) #ap regulatory-domain-profile rd1
